Sons of Liberty Encampment: Epic NorCal Young Men’s Event

Posted in Activities, LDS Activities, Youth Conference by ldsym on August 5, 2008

I have been in Northern California for the last 2 weeks on a family vacation. Young Men leaders there have put together and incredible activity for their Young men. It is called Sons of Liberty Encampment.

14 Stakes are banding together to turn a dusty piece of desert into a small town. From what I understand, they have bring in water, power, sanitation, everything they need. In all they will have about 5000 Boys & Leaders. I talked to one Priest who is going up to the site with his quorum 3 days early so set up temporary swimming pools so the boys can learn to SCUBA dive. They are also bringing in top speakers, including L. Tom Perry and John Bytheway and some professional athletes.

My hat is off to the leaders there for thinking big, and coming through with what looks like a really amazing event. I took these pictures from their website, go check their site, you’ll be mightily impressed with the effort. It makes our Mutual event planned for this week look pretty puny.
